The Kiss Angels, 50 Shades of Hope team have come up with a creative way of fundraising for the Relay For Life, a purple potty.TRENT HORNEMAN September 3, 2014 3:44am
A team competing in this year’s Relay For Life is hoping to be flush with cash after launching an interesting fundraising campaign this week.
The Kiss Angels, 50 Shades of Hope team believes a bright purple toilet will not only raise cash for cancer research, but also awareness of this year’s relay on October 25-26 at Moama Recreation Reserve.
For a fee, a business or house will pay to have the toilet removed. For a little extra, someone nominated to host the purple potty can nominate someone else, find out who nominated them or insure themselves against having to have it at their place.
Hare St business Pie House was the first to own the purple throne, having won the best business display as part of Friday’s Paint the Town Purple Day.
Owner Jayne Birrell said she was happy to be nominated and was considering paying to offload the toilet to someone in coming days.
‘‘It is a bit of fun all in the name of charity,’’ she said.
‘‘We got involved in the purple day on Friday, it was a great day and now we have talked about putting a team together for the relay.’’
Purple potty organiser Babs Smith said she first saw the fundraising idea used by friends in the US for a similar event.
Ms Smith said this was her first foray into the Relay For Life.
‘‘This year, I have lost three close friends to cancer,’’ she said.
‘‘It touches so many lives. It does not discriminate.’’
